Downloaded the drivers, have no idea where they went. I can't get it to work, any suggestions?

My suggestion would be to find the driver...lol (sorry).

When you downloaded it and it asked you where you wanted to save it, what did you choose?

Also, is this the .ppd driver for cups?

Need more info on how you're trying to get the printer working. Also, what puppy version?

Duh!! Have no idea what "cups" is, , am, , are. All I remember is googling "HP deskjet D 1320 Linux", following the link to two possibles. One a tarbaby, tarball, whatever ithey are called and an alternative. I'll see if I can find the link. The download patch said it went to dotpup, but it twernt there. I downloaded the alternative.

ff,

if that's a hp laserjet d1320, then this site:

http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=HP-LaserJet_D1320

says that they work perfectly with linux.

the simplest way is to download the custom ppd file from that site, & ungzip that file to /root, then to download & run pakt's cups install from here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1289196257&t=13466

then open a browser and type http://localhost:631/ and then, when you choose to add a printer, your printer should be an option.

Nope, its an inexpensive deskjet. Wonder why they used the same number for a she-she product?

ff,

googling for "linux hp d1320" & your query comes up 2nd! anyway, if you check here:

http://hplip.sourceforge.net/supported_devices/inkjet.html

it mentions that hplip-1.6.6 supports your printer. however it takes a bit of effort to get hplip working in puppy, as this link shows:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=625225635&t=12590

alternatively on this veclinux site:

http://www.vectorlinux.com/forum2/index.php?topic=2228.msg13143

it says:

Quote:

I finally found one that worked and printed a nice test page real fast..
.. the model of my printer is Deskjet D1320, the driver that works is
for PSC 1310 Foomatic/hpijs


this might be the easiest solution. download the 1310 ppd file from:

http://www.linuxprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.cgi?driver=hpijs&printer=HP-PSC_1310&show=0

then save this file to /root directory. then install pakt's cups pup-package, & hopefully, when you start the cups browser page & select add printer, then select the PSC1310, your d1320 will work.

That may be one of the problems, I have attempted to download cups 3 times and keep getting error messages. I don't know what the cups browser page looks like or where to find it.

ff,

pakt's cups is available here:

http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Printing/cups-install-v0.3.pup

however it's 18.5M download. what sort of installation of puppy have you got? because if you've got a pup_save.sfs file & have difficulty extracting this as a pup install, instead you can copy it to cups-install-v0.3.zip, then extract it using xarchiver, then change to the created directory & run the install script.

download it by opening a console window & entering:


Code:

wget -c http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups/Printing/cups-install-v0.3.pup


( the -c just gets wget to resume broken downloads)

The c did not work so I just used wget. It started to download just fine, then choked at 34%.

i'm grasping at straws here! but for wget to work, albeit to 34%, but not wget -c , suggests that there's been a major communication breakdown between me & thee, or your puppy is dysfunctional in some way.

i'm a 50% graphical user & 50% commandline, and i think wget is the bee's knees of commandline programs, in that people frequently request downloaders that can resume broken dloads, and wget is 100% successful for me.

perhaps you've made a typo somewhere. try doing:

Code:
wget --help | more
to see wget's capabilities.

Well I have a feeling that because I live in the deepest, darkest area of the Missouri Ozarks with really crappy corroded telephone lines that it is just the local connections. I have two alternatives one of which is to have a friend on satelite download the thing to disc and use that. The other is to download in the middle of the night when there is little activity on the server. I'll keep working on this.
